Of all the great plays Lincoln lovers of
the drama have feen this sjjlsoii, none have
been of such merit or received such general
praise and comment from the dramatic world
us has tho great play of "The Stowaway,"
which Is to lie presented at FunkoV next

"Tho Stownwuy" last evening made Its iu

of night it was mucky, rainy, cIiho and un

Walnut was tested to accouiniodaUi tho audi

contentment and applauded heartily nnd of

tho conventional melodramatic lines. It has
received at the hands of Mr. Tom Craven, its
author, exceptionally good shaping. In the
second place it has been placed in the hands
of a i emnrkubly clever lot of nctors and uc

their artistic treatment. Judgtsl, therefor, In
tho light of last night's ierforiumicu mid
patronage the play is more than an ordinary
success, it is a go, and a go of the most cer
